What a lovely evening!
The Irish Writers' Centre was pretty much packed out. Books were selling, sparkling water was flowing - you get the picture.
At the award ceremony last week I read the opening of 'Gilt', which throws you in at the deep end. It's quite a tough piece to get the hang of when you're hearing it for the first time. Last night I chose a more user-friendly section, which I think worked better. The reading was taped, so I'll see about getting footage uploaded, and then you can judge for yourselves.
The nicest audience in the whole world turned up, asked interesting questions and took the time to chat and give feedback after we wrapped up. Brilliant!
Okay, now down to work :)
